When Lincoln pulled the plug on the Town Car, livery companies cried. For them it was the perfect vehicle since it offered the right amount of and bulletproof reliability that is needed for this line of work. Lincoln is offering Livery companies the MKT Town Car which offers more space than the outgoing Town Car, but it doesn't seem many liveries are picking one up. Because of this, automakers like Cadillac and even Toyota are courting livery companies to their sedans.

Realizing that not all livery companies want a MKT in their fleet, Lincoln announced they would be making a livery version of the MKS sedan. Shown at the 2013 International LCT Show, the MKS Livery sedan will be available in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive versions and have a starting price of $43,865.

Toyota should offer double the warranty to Livery customers to steal that market. Lincoln's retail sales are nearly extinct, if someone takes away their fleet sales, they'll be gone in 5 years.

      Back in January, Ford announced they would be introducing 13 new electric and hybrid vehicles including a hybrid Mustang and plug-in hybrid version of the F-150. Automotive News has learned about four additional vehicles that will launch in 2019.
      According to sources familiar with Ford's plans, the company will launch plug-in hybrid versions of the Escape and Lincoln MKC, along with hybrid variants of the Expedition and Navigator. Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting for LMC Automotive said it makes sense for Ford to do hybrid variants of SUVs and crossovers as they are hot sellers. 
      "They're at a critical point in their strategy, and that's trying to balance today and tomorrow. You don't want to go all in on EVs at this point because that's not going to pay the bills and keep the lights on today, but you also don't want to get behind," said Schuster.
      The return of a hybrid Escape comes at an interesting time as Ford begins to end production of the C-Max Hybrid and Energi models.
